St Albans nature lovers are being encouraged to join an environmental action group.

Green Party district councillor Simon Grover is organising a meeting of the Environment Action Group for between 7pm and 9pm on Thursday, October 25 in Committee Room 2 at the district council’s offices on St Peter’s Street.

This first meeting will discuss what environmental issues the group could look at in the future, how the meetings ought to work, and any environmental aspects of the agenda for the following week’s Community, Environment and Sport Scrutiny Committee.

Cllr Grover has stressed the group is not an official council one, and unlike the Environment Forum, which was closed several years ago, the idea of the Environment Action Group is to focus on what can actually be changed and achieved locally, with and alongside the council.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
